Fearless Farmers Weekly writers James Andrews and Oli Mark scoured the endless jam-packed halls of the Agritechnica showground to check out some of the biggest, longest, wackiest and most powerful pieces of equipment.

Look out for the high-tech shinyness of the New Holland T7 tractor, Gregoire Besson’s biggest-ever 17-furrow plough, Dalbo’s acre-gobbling 24m rolls, Arbos’s Kohler-powered Chinese tractor, the giant 15t Russian-made Kirovets tractor, CHD’s 14,000 litre swimming-pool-sized sprayer and the wackiest (and least sensible) pickup in the show – the 8.9 litre Chevy V8.
